French Tuna Salad

French Tuna Salad

One of my favorite salads, easy to make and if you are a tuna fan like me, the combination with tomatoes, boiled eggs and olives really makes it into a great breakfast. Heck I even had this late in the afternoon and I enjoyed it with the same passion, but then again I am probably more of a breakfast guy to be honest. Still, there a a couple of changes from the classic formula, no black olives and a couple of extra crazy spicy little hot peepers, just to bring up the flavor a little bit.
